An Agility assessment to foster innovation and build a holistic Agile culture and environment

A Tier-1 bank client had multiple projects with hard delivery deadlines. The bank asked Synechron to:conduct an Agility assessment, recommend to leadership ways to enhance the bank’s Agility and detail how the bank could preserve and expand the newfound Agility. Synechron developed a customized multi-factor assessment approach which included analyzing: team dynamics, product management including Definition of Done (DoD), sprint ceremonies and backlog grooming,and DevOps including frequency of deployment

We developed a multi-phased assessment methodology for assessing: teams, ceremonies, individual discussions, and analyzing artifacts and the system of record.

  • Phase 1: Synechron observed team ceremonies, dynamics, practices and mindsets, gathering data through self-assessments from all teams and having candid, one-on-one discussions.
  • Phase 2: Synechron conducted follow-ups and internal collaboration, summarized gaps and themes, developed recommendations and a solutions roadmap, and aligned on next steps.
